We’re excited about new ways to reach the public online and via mobile devices. Here are a few examples:
Online outreach — The framework of traditional print media has crumbled, and broadcast media is competing for an ever-fragmented audience. In the wake, online social networks, blogs, video, and spaces for user-generated content are building communities, and connecting with and educating the public. Read more about how you can collaborate with IDEA for online outreach.
Virtual exhibits — Blogs, videos, news reports, and tweets can only skim the surface of many topics, such as understanding the complexities of biodiversity and climate change, or appreciating the creative process behind poetry and paintings. A curated, museum-like approach is a great way to organize information on the web or on mobile devices. Read more about IDEA’s work with virtual exhibits, and talk to us if you’re interested in creating a web or mobile exhibit.
Mobile apps — The public expects organizations to have mobile apps. They want information anytime and anyplace – while they commute, while they walk around, or while they’re relaxing at home. IDEA has created several highly interactive mobile apps, and we are interested in collaborations with organizations, publishers, and authors. Read more about our work with apps, or if you are an author, consider using IDEA as your publisher
There are many other ways to share information online. It’s possible to for conferences to have a long-term impact by documenting the events via blogs and videos. To broaden conference accessibility, real-time interactivity can be delivered to those who cannot attend. In addition, databases, data visualizations, and interactive maps can all be shared online.
Our passion is brainstorming and strategizing new ideas for making information accessible. Talk to us about your needs, and we’ll work together to arrive at a solution.
